• Roadsmith Unveils New Auxiliary Fuel Tank Option for Harley-Davidson Touring

    White Bear Lake, MN (February 10, 2015) – Roadsmith Trikes unveiled an all new auxiliary fuel tank option at the V-Twin Dealer Expo in Cincinnati, and at the Minneapolis Progressive International Motorcycle Show this past weekend. Roadsmith’s new option will be of utmost importance to the true touring trike rider, featuring a full 3-gallon fuel capacity and separate filler neck allowing for long distance range and rapid fill. The system also features an “on-the-fly” transfer system, with the push of a button, all 3-gallons can transfer to the main tank in a matter of minutes. This new option is poised to not only allow the rider to go the extra mile, but more importantly offer a peace of mind knowing that fuel will no longer limit the adventure. The auxiliary tank retails for $799 and is designed for the 2009 and newer Harley-Davidson based trike conversions for the company’s flagship HDTR model. For more than 40 years, Roadsmith Trikes has been designing and producing some of the best engineered, best handling trikes in the business. Based in White Bear Lake, MN, Roadsmith manufactures and distributes 19 different trike conversion kits for Honda, Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian motorcycles. They are represented by over a 100 Roadsmith dealers in the U.S. and Canada as well as their own retail location, The Trike Shop, on Beach Street in Daytona Beach, FL.

    Either way the antenna on a bike is just troublesome at best. I have a ground antenna on my Indian and range is nothing like my car. Very short in comparison.

    Besides the steering head bearings, another possibility could be tires. Check the condition of all 3 tires. You could be experiencing tread separation.

    No it’s not because I’m letting go of the bars I have owed this trike for ten years never ever wobbled even low speed I could ride no handed if I wanted.

    There are several things it could be. Including, steering head bearings. But if you didn't experience the wobble before, then I agree to check the last

    Well if you're letting go of the bars don't do that. Low speed head shake is pretty common. Never let go of the bars.
